Boris Johnson's has consistently stated he will not form a pact with Nigel Farage's Brexit Party, the so called Leave Alliance could also include a few Labour candidates who are leavers.
Now Boris Johnson's position at first may appear odd, for the Prime Minster who won the Conservative leadership race on the concept of delivering Brexit by any means necessary, surely packing Parliament with as many strong Brexiteers could only be a good thing?
However an important point to note is the May/Johnson Withdrawal Agreement is bad.
If the Brexit party were to achieve something like 30 MP's at the election, the Conservatives would very likely need Brexit party support to get the Withdrawal Agreement done, however very few Brexiteers that are not connected to the Tories think the WA is good, so Brexit party MP's would insist on amendments or push for WTO clean brexit instead.
This exposes Johnson to the public as having tried to push through a bad deal, and with a sizable number to MP's, the Brexit party will have significant airtime on main stream media to pick apart Johnson's bad WA.
One should realise Johnson has never been serious about a WTO brexit, numerous options were available to sink the Surrender Bill, but not were taken, Johnson's intention has always been to tweak the May deal and ram it home.
Now, Johnson is a show man, and Dominic Cummings is the strategy man, its possible Johnson can charm the public into voting a Tory majority and Cummings will be applying spin like a mad man, so unless the numbers really look like a Conservative government will be impossible without Brexit Party support, the Leave Alliance will be rejected.
As much as a pact with the Brexit party could benefit the Tories by denying Labour seats in the North, the bigger risk to Johnson is doing a deal with potential MP's who truley believe in Brexit, as it will unravel Johnson's 'fantastic' deal as pretty much brexit in name only, and something passionate Brexit voters should support.
Time will tell if Boris Johnson can keep the wheels from falling off before election day.
If Boris Johnson extends Article 50 delaying Brexit I'll be voting for the Brexit Party.
The risk of another Tory government is that even if Boris Johnson can manage to gain enough support for the Conservative party to do well in the next general election, what if he is toppled or is forced to resign?
We could easily be left stuck for 5 years with a Tory remainer government.
The safest outcome for Brexiteers is a Conservative and Brexit Party coalition government, led by Prime Minster Boris Johnson with oversight from Nigel Farage.
The `Brexit Party Leader Nigel Farage's interview on Sophy Ridge on Sunday
"We're ready to fight this election... We've said that if Boris Johnson's Party goes for a clean break, then of course we ought in those circumstances, to have a non-aggression pact... If that did happen, Johnson would win a very big parliamentary majority."
Brexit Party MEP Claire Fox's interview on Sophy Ridge on Sunday
"If the Brexit Party didn't exist, Theresa May would still be running the Conservative Party... The role of the Brexit Party continues to be to argue for a clean Brexit, to carry on arguing for democracy..."
The vast majority of Conservative switchers to the Brexit Party would come back to the Tories in a subsequent general election if Boris can deliver Brexit.
But if they fail to deliver Brexit by the October 31 deadline, only 56 per cent of Tory members would vote for the Tories. 35 per cent would switch their support and instead back the Brexit Party, according to the poll of 511 Conservative members.
If the UK left by the deadline, Conservative members would flock back, with 92 per cent backing the Tories. Brexit Party backing among Conservative Party members would fall to just five per cent.
1. Any Tory who won't take us out of the EU by October 31st doesn't deserve to be PM 2. Boris Johnson’s dream team falls apart 3. Stop Boris? These days it’s Operation Stop Raab 4. Jeremy Corbyn’s team blocked female MP’s sexual harassment complaint 5. Investigation into claims Plymouth students were illegally registered to vote 6. It’s un-British to roll out the red carpet for Donald Trump 7. The strange death of Labour Britain
Plus we take a look at what Steve Baker said on the BBC, what Nigel Farage said on Sky News, Richard Tice (chair of the Brexit party) speaks in response to those opposing Brexit and the non-controversy over Ann Widdecombe's statements on "gay conversion".
